    Are there any app to sync my android phone to OSX contacts? Currently i can only export into vcf format to my Gmail and sync from there.

    I'm looking for the same thing. Unfortunately, I have not seen anything in the market that does this.

    There's a plug in for iTunes that allows you to sync your contacts to a gmail account, from there just add your gmail account.

    Here is what I did. Sync your contacts from address book to a google account. You can do this under prefs in address book. Then go to iCal and create a new calendar. Use the "plus" at the bottom of the toolbar on the left side of the window. When the box opens you'll see a drop down for a google calendar. Set it up and now that calendar will sync with the calendar on google's site which will sync with your phone. The only weakness is that only one cal will sync to ical. You can always set up more on the actual google calendar website, and of course all those will sync with the phone.

    Also if you use google mail with apple mail, make sure its set up as a IMAP account and not a POP account under mail prefs. Then all the mail will sync across the the three (www, phone, and app) within a few min of each other. This is of course, assuming you have the phone set up to sync automatically.

    Maybe you already figured this out tho....
